Specter of haunt-ological Halloween mixes
By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Wed Oct 31 2012 2:24 PM ]
When it comes to my holiday music obsessions, Halloween ranks right up there with Christmas. (Note to musicians: please create more vaguely Easter-themed music.) As evidence of my aural fixation, I submit my Trick or Treatise playlist from last year. This year, I enlisted the vinyl intelligence of DJ Mello to create a scarily rad playlist for my blog. She delivered in spades, with doo-wop and Latin jazz, an obscure '60s girl group's explanation of the zombie walk, an R&B ode to gorillas and loads more. Stream her Songs That Go Bop in the Night below. See the original post for the full track list.
I hadn't planned to make a Halloween mix this year, but the bad earworm fairy finally relented. I conjured up a spectral, spooky and witchy 13-song tribute to the most makeup and candy-centric day of the year. It features tracks by Zombelle, Dani Shivers, Selma Oxor, Soap&Skin, CRIM3S, Dame Darcy, Lee Noble and others. Stream my 2012 mix, All of Them VVitches after the jump. Happy haunting!
